仅仅在美国法院超过20亿美元罚款宣判一个月后,The Cartel聊天室遭受到了类似北部边境案的效仿诉讼。
尽管华尔街希望达成和解,他们发布声明说明他们背后外汇交易者的欺诈行为并且同意支付超过20亿美元的罚款。上个月银行鼓励各个阶层的人提出更多的诉讼。三家加拿大律师事务所刚刚效仿了在安大略省高等法院对许多本地及国际金融机构的诉讼案提出了一个10亿美元的诉讼。
新的诉讼声称银行涉嫌合谋”来解决,提高、维护稳定、控制、或改进不合理的货币在外汇市场上购买的价格,修复、维护、控制、预防、降低、消除,或过度降低外汇市场上外汇的供应。“加拿大人进一步声称阴谋影响几十个货币对,包括美元/加元货币对。
被指控的被告包括:加拿大皇家银行、美国银行、巴莱克银行、德意志银行、高盛公司、汇丰银行、摩根大通、苏格兰皇家银行以及瑞士信贷。
正如美国的诉讼案,加拿大的原告声称被告直接在聊天室使用名为“The Cartel”和“The Bandits俱乐部”以及“The Mafia”进行聊天协调:修改现货价格,控制或操纵外汇基准利率,交换客户密钥保密信息,以及开启客户端止损指令,订单限制。
“被告从事的共谋行为,”法院文件中指出,“被告间交换的关于他们的客户止损订单和限制订单价格的信息,目的是为了协调交易价格的临界值。被告利用对这些订单的价格的摇摆进行控制以及操控,进而对止损和限制订单进行操控。”
Koskie Minsky公司的合伙人Kirk Baert,公司的行动小组组长评论到:“在这种情况下提出问题很麻烦。许多银行与美国司法部和欧盟认罪并达成协议。一些已经在美国提起了集体诉讼。这种说法,确保了如果他们在加拿大遭受到了任何的损失,将会得到适当的补偿。”
 
Major Banks Face New $1 Billion FX Manipulation Lawsuit in Canada
Only one month after settlements in U.S courts exceeded $2 billion, ‘The Cartel’ is hit with a copycat action north of the border.
Despite Wall Street’s hopes that by reaching settlements they can put the claims of scamming FX traders behind them, by agreeing to pay over $2 billion in the U.S last month the banks appear to have encouraged even more class action suits against them. Three Canadian law firms have just launched a $1 billion copycat suit in the Ontario Superior Court of Justice against a long list of local and international financial institutions.
The new lawsuit claims that the banks allegedly conspired “to fix, raise, maintain, stabilize, control, or enhance unreasonably the prices of currency purchased in the FX Market, and to fix, maintain, control, prevent, lessen, eliminate, or unduly lessen the supply of foreign currencies on the FX Market.” The Canadians further allege that the conspiracy impacted dozens of currency pairs, including the USD/CAD currency pair.
The list of defendants includes the Royal Bank of Canada, Bank of America Canada, Barclays Bank PLC, Deutsche Bank, Goldman Sachs & Co., HSBC Bank, JPMorgan Chase & Co., Royal Bank of Scotland and Credit Suisse.
As with the U.S suit, the Canadian plaintiffs allege that the defendants communicated directly with one another in chat rooms with names such as ‘The Cartel’, ‘The Bandits’ Club’ and ‘The Mafia’ to coordinate: their fixing of spot prices, controlling or manipulating of FX benchmark rates, and exchanging of key confidential customer information in an effort to trigger client stop-loss orders and limit orders.
“The defendants engaged in additional collusive conduct,” say the court files. “The defendants exchanged information about the prices at which their respective customers had stop-loss orders and limit orders for the purpose of coordinating their trading to trigger these pricing thresholds. The defendants exploited these orders by controlling or manipulating prices to swing to the price at which the stop-loss or limit order is triggered.”
Kirk Baert, partner at Koskie Minsky and head of the firm’s class action group, commented: “The issues raised by this case are very troubling. A number of banks throughout the world have reached plea agreements with the U.S. Department of Justice or the EU. A number of others have settled similar class actions filed in the United States. This claim will make sure that Canadians who have been harmed will be properly compensated for any losses they may have suffered.”
